强烈推荐这篇综述 2/23/2010 14:32
Luanne recommended this excellent excellent review on the current stage of psychiatry and pyschotheropy to me.
I will save it here and share with you.

这篇文章虽然有点长, 但你如果有耐心读完, 你会对美国当前的精神健康和心理治疗的文化,哲学, 经济, 政治, 科学的各个方面有个认识.

最高度推荐. 而且里面提到了许多书, 如果你有兴趣可以借读.

也会明白为什么会在小徐这件事上的踌躇. pray in heart may be a better choice. rose
Many people today are infatuated with the biological determinants of things. They find compelling the idea that moods, tastes, preferences, and behaviors can be explained by genes, or by natural selection, or by brain amines (even though these explanations are almost always circular: if we do x, it must be because we have been selected to do x). People like to be able to say, I’m just an organism, and my depression is just a chemical thing, so, of the three ways of considering my condition, I choose the biological. People do say this. The question to ask them is, Who is the “I” that is making this choice? Is that your biology talking, too?

这是文章的中心思想吧。

an important one,it pointed out the limit of mental illness to be science, and reviewed how pharm industry (money), culture, philosophy, society and politics on how we define and treat mental illness.

many very good points have made for reflection and critical thinking.

那么,使用毒品为什么是错误的呢?

我认为,这文章最主要要说的,是指出了需要现实解决的问题,也就是社会压力问题,那就别光用药物来粉饰表面。

我很赞同这个想法。因为问题要分主次,光解决次要的方面,不从根本上去解决问题,以此来达到让“病人”对药物的长期依赖性,以达到药厂大赚其钱的目的。这确实是个阴谋。

deviance 和 disorder 的区别。

大伙别整天把自己当机器,吃药很大程度是为了能function well, 能fit in 社会规范的‘正常“ well.

How about prenatal vitamins? My Doctor at Newton Wellesley Hospital told me that I have to take it if I want a healthy baby.

I hate that taste, but I have to sacrifice for the baby. frustrated

我现在在读那些读者评论。现在还没有看到什么有价值的评论,或者有什么深刻的领会。大部分都是些搞这行的,现在透过本来的理论,更加了解和领会作者这个人了。

下面这段话让我看得哈哈大笑: Laughing Laughing

“...after all, these terms (archetypes, collective unconscious) are now a part of our worldview. That is what Jung hoped for. But also he hoped (and said) that a time would come we would realize we ARE each other and that what we do toward one another we do to ourselves. So we would no longer make war or hurt each other because we could just skip the middle man and do it to ourself. ”


有时候觉得西方人挺傻。
简单的智慧要无穷个弯子来证明出来才算。
老子早说过了。也就是他为什么主张‘无为’。

为了‘有为’才产生出这么多心里疾病。

support 随时‘不玩了’。
小孩子输了,可以说“我不玩了”。以为是赖皮。其实大人好多问题如果也说“我不跟你玩“,那女教授就不会杀人了。

其实‘不跟你玩了’表现的是能跳出来不钻牛角尖。

人们常常以为必须按着别人定好的规则玩游戏,玩儿到金字塔上边的人就是牛仁。
其实敢于不按别人的规则玩儿,自己找出条玩儿的路子自得其乐才是我心目中的牛仁。哈哈

In your case, the medicine is not to treat disorder but to prevent disorder, and to make sure that your baby's weight is not deviant.

so i think you should take it but you don't have to if you have time to cook yourself balanced food. smile
